Willow Park - Rosedale Vic Free Camp. Very nice. Level grassy large area with porta loo. Safe overnight camp off the highway. Would stay again. Full phone service.
Lakes Entrance - A pleasant day shopping and having a look around. Cheap VLine bus fare from Lake Tyers. $1.20 each way. Very nice place.
Waterwheel Tavern - Lake Tyers 9/10 First night free. Every other night $10. Includes power, toilets, showers, laundry and right on the edge of lake and beach for swimming. Hardly any mobile/internet reception, that is why it didn’t get a 10/10. Easy bus ride to shopping at Lakes Entrance for $1.20 each way Usually live entertainment at Tavern on Friday and Saturday nights. Garlic pizza ‘Yum’ Take-a-way Shop next door. Sea was a bit rough, but very refreshing. Jelly fish in the Lake???? Not over keen, but nice clean sandy bottom. Beaut for canoes and kayaks. Stayed for 3 nights.
Cann River Rainforest Caravan Park. Fantastic Free Camp. Level grassy large sites. Toilets and showers (although cold water only). Nice walk across bridge to street full of cafes and a pub. Swimming in river if there has been rain, but very little water when we were here. very safe spot. Media reception. 8/10
Genoa Camp Park. Really good free camp. Large grassy level areas with clean toilets. Suitable for big rigs, has Creek for swimming (if there has been rain), and fishing. Nice walk across historic bridge to hotel (except hotel dark, dingy, smelly and dirty. It does do meals, but from first appearances, wouldn’t like to eat there, so we didn’t). Has reception 😁
Dr. William Loftus Park - Candelo NSW Free Camp. Flat sealed area. Clean toilets. Very good camp. Small town but didn’t get to enjoy it as weather was wet and too crap to walk around and have a look, so moved on after one night otherwise would have stayed longer.
Narooma NSW. Lunch stop over. Very nice looking town. Found Australia Rock 😁
North Head Camping Area. Full up and couldn’t get a camp site, but we ended up camping the night in the day car park. Just hope the park ranger doesn’t come. Had an enjoyable swim on arrival.
Dolphin Point. A stop off for a nice refreshing swim and lunch break.
Bendeela Camping Reserve right on the Kangaroo River of Kangaroo Valley. 9/10 for free camp. (Poor internet coverage is reason it didn’t get a perfect score). Lovely green level areas, clean maintained toilets, lots of drinkable water taps around and also security patrolled 24/7, especially in holiday populated busy periods. Especially loved the protected wombats.
Capertee Rest Area. Great clean sealed level large site. Very clean toilets. Nice and quiet (only a few trucks). Downfall: Little and no Phone/internet service or TV reception. Therefore very boring night with nothing to do and nothing to watch.
Mudgee. Lunch stop. Fairly large nice town. Passed Frog Rock on the way in.
Binnaway Pumphouse Reserve. Great free camp. $2 coin operated showers. $2 coin operated power for 3 hour timer. Toilets. Close to town and swimming pool. Town very small and nothing to do. Very. Very hot when we were here. 39 and 49. Had to use power to run air con.
Gurley Recreation Ground $10 for one night which included power, showers and water. Thank God for power, seeing as temp was 39 and we needed air con. One horse dead end town though. Only rough old pub on corner.
Goondiwindi - Stroll around town visit. Didn’t take long. ALL shops closed due to it being Sunday - Even Coles Supermarket closed!!! Too hot to stay long. Had a really weak shitty coffee at Batesys Bakery along with uncooked sausage rolls. I hate wasting money 🤬
Karara Recreational Area Qld - Free Overnight Camp with use of hall toilets and showers for $4 Nice quiet and safe spot off the road, but nothing to do as nothing close except for Tavern if you want to spend money on food and drink.
